Brownfields Economic Redevelopment Initiative

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Brownfields Economic Redevelopment program revitalizes and strengthens towns and communities across the country. The cleanup and redevelopment of contaminated sites spurs economic growth and protects public health and the environment. Ethan Allen has proudly partnered with state and federal agencies to help clean up contaminated areas and make them usable again. We were one of the first companies in Vermont and Virginia to participate in this program. The former New Hampshire turnstile land next to our Beecher Falls, Vermont, manufacturing plant, and the land on which our Dublin, Virginia, facility sits were both sites that we cleaned up in accordance with state and federal regulations under Brownfields provisions.
